introductions. >> president chiu: colleagues, why don't we recall supervisor olague's item which is item 16. madam clerk, did you call that item? >> clerk calvillo: yes, mr. president. it is now on the floor. >> president chiu: supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: there were a few -- this is introduced a couple of times, and then we continued it because there were some issues that were outstanding, and so i'll just go ahead and mention how some of those were resolved. the first thing, the issue of defining when planning staff reports are required to include the dashboard has basically been settled. so the changes are on page 4, line 24. and it mentions they will outline staff reports to the planning commission historic preservation commission and the board of supervisors so that's kind of stated there, on all proposed projects, it mentions it in detail. also, there was this -- the big dispute was really about the naming -- or defining of housing above 120% or from 120 to dj), . some -- i believe that it's the planning department, i might be wrong, that defines it as middle income housin

objectives colleagues? we heard from commissioner olague about -- i think a very, very good issue which is the issue of committee appointments and the structure where you have split appointments as opposed to simply mayoral appointments and how that works. i think that is one possibility. commissioner avalos. >> just a vague idea that i want to put out there that could be looked at by lafco maybe. one is we talk about san francisco's growing economy, and it's especially growing in the tech sector. there was a report in the paper today from the bay area council study and uc berkeley study there is a great multiplying effect happening right now with jobs created but i'm wondering if the city having greater or in the water to make sure that we are building a pipeline between long-term local residents especially comments of color with jobs in the tech center would be something that we look at possibly, but that's an interest i have. there is an example in our packet that talks about looking at trees and the issue of relinquishment right now in san francisco and tip -- stipically befor

because of that it probably is the last meeting that we will have commissioner olague sitting in as a member of lafco for at least for the time being, and so i just -- on a very personal note i want to take this opportunity to thank commissioner olague for her service on the local agency formation commission. it really has been an honor and you have provided a tremendous contribution. i think it's definitely the case that community choice aggregation would not be where it is today without your support and involvement, and it's really -- it's been an honor and a pleasure and you know it is my hope that you continue to be involved in lafco, and i just want to say i'm very grateful to you. it really has been an honor for me to serve with you so i wanted to take the opportunity to note that. commissioner avalos. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >> actually commissioner schmeltzer, did you want to say anything? >> i wanted to concur and thank commissioner olague for her work on lafco and other matters. we have one more board meeting together as well, and it's been great. i am actually really pr

sure that trucks, including emergency vehicle, could make those turns. >> supervisor olague: basically there are no longer two bulbouts there on that street. it's just been -- one has been eliminated. >> correct. >> supervisor olague: and then the other issue that someone mentioned was the traffic study. so i wonder if you could comment on that, that there was no traffic study but many of us were under the impression that there was a traffic study. and it seems to me -- and i was curious to know who conducted that study because there was some comment that it wasn't independent. i'm not quite sure what's meant by that but if you could elaborate a little bit that would be helpful. >> like i mentioned we've been studying this for a year now but it was nine months in the planning process and we conducted traffic counts, and it was mta staff who collected traffic count data. we had an independent party help us collect some of the bike data, but we also collected bike data by ourselves. we collect our own speed surveys. and then our ma engineers built a traffic model, a simulation

-- supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: one of the issues that keep coming up is the issue of the bulbouts. what is your response to that. >> as it was stated in the appeal, i believe supervisor, is what you're asking is that bulbouts will slow down traffic to the point that they should be analyzed as increasing traffic congestion. and really bulbouts, which are the corner widening of the sidewalk in order to increase visibility of people before they step off the curb and also, yes, to slow down cars as they turn it but really we looked at it and even if you looked at it in detail, and you said a car was slowing down it might be by a second and not every car is turning at every intersection where the bulbouts are. yes hopefully they will slow down to increase safety but it's not in any measurable way that it will increase congestion. >> supervisor olague: i think they were referring specifically to the two that were going to be i believe at broderick and fell. is that right? >> right. >> supervisor olague: and they said there was some mention that it would have an impact on safety vehicles

that commissioner olague's going to be out there organizing seniors, environmental justice around issues and so many things she has already done so we will continue to see you in city hall i know. >> yeah and i was grateful to be part of the clean power sf conversation because i kind of harp how i was following this issue around sustainability and clean power and just really kind of handing that issue back to consumers rather than allowing certain corporations to continue to monopolize it and promote type of energy use that isn't sustainable so whether it's clean power sf or the ideas from germany and free berg i am proud to you part of that conversation and vote for it on the board level and one thing i regret not being part of the municipal bank conversation and i think that will be interesting and from a nerdy perspective. it's not exciting to most people -- or at least i hope it isn't. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >>i hope you come talk to us about it anyway. >> yeah. >> i do believe that for me that the vote on community choice aggregation was one of the most important votes t

like to encourage their use. what supervisor olague's ordinance would do is take properties currently zoned nc3, which stands for neighborhood cooperative moderate scale and turn them into the fillmore mcd the boundaries of the ncd fit within the old boundaries of the redevelopment area for the western addition. i believe it went all the way to bush street, which is where this neighborhood district would end. the ordinance would also remove the minimum parking controls and institute maximum parking controls, this is a trend throughout the city and fits with the city's transit first policy. it would down zone sign requirements from nc3 standards to nc2 standards, and allow a 5 foot high bonus for properties that are 40 and 50 feet from the area. the supervisor would like this continued to the beginning of this year so we will probably be asking for a continuance this thursday. the department supports the creation of an individually named ncd area on fillmore street. it helps preserve the character of the neighborhood and also helps preserve a sense of identification. we are asking for

san francisco defines middle class. supervisor olague stated that the planning department says the middle class is 120 to 150% ami. it's not the planning department it's the housing element and the planning code. housing at 180% of af mi and above and defines middle class income housing as housing affordable to households making between 120 and 150% of median income. then we look at planning code section 4001 which defines middle income household as a household whose combined annual gross income for all members is between 120% and 150% of the local median income. so as a matter of policy, and as a matter of law, in san francisco, 120 toñjp 150% of area median income is middle class. so why on earth would anyone would try to strip out the reference to that income range6 as being middle class is something that i don't really understand. i also do not think that the mayor's office of housing has indicated that 120 to 150% of ami is upper middle income housing. when i did a hearing earlier this year about middle class housing there was a particular mayor's office office of housing, a

terrible message to the people of san francisco. >> president chiu: supervisor olague -- and before you respond, supervisor olague, our clerk wanted to clarify that the additional language of or other available data you will make that amendment to all references where it refers to data on households earning approximately 120 to 150%. >> supervisor olague: yes. >> president chiu: okay. so hopefully that's clear to our city attorney. supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: basically, i think what's important is that the reporting and the analysis capture 120 to 150. originally, the reporting was only going to go up to 120 because that is kind of the standard -- the bar that's set i then, you know, there was an amendment proposed to increase it to 150, which i don't think there was any disputing that any debate. i think yeah, we agreed, it should be included in there. but there still seemed to be some -- i don't know if disagreement is the right word. there seems to be some semantics going on here around, you know, is it upper moderate income housing, which is what my understanding was, t

this measure. >> supervisor campos: thank you. supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: i'm just going to mention that i receive e-mails all the time with people that are upset that there are homeless people in the neighborhood. i probably get more e-mails protesting that than just about anything and i would be the last person to ever legislate banning homeless people from certain parts of the city. so and so i'm still trying to understand what is so unique and so different about what's happened that we need this now, even though for all these decades that has not been the case. and the second point is i want to be very clear. i don't know that anyone is saying taking care of the little things that happen in a neighborhood are not important. those things are what make the life of a neighborhood work. the pothole is as important as any piece of legislation because it is critical to the daily life of that individual. but what we are saying is that if i have a pothole in my neighborhood, i am not going to come to the board of supervisors, and pass citywide legislation to address it.
